Telasco Segovia and his journey

Telasco Segovia was born in the city of Barquisimeto, in the Lara region, on April 2, 2003.

According to reports, he began his football career in the U15 team of his region’s club, Deportivo Lara, in 2016.

He stayed there until 2022, playing 67 games and scoring 6 goals.

His impressive performances caught the attention of European football, leading to a loan spell at Sampdoria in Italy.

Upon arrival, he joined the U19 team, where he remained for a year. He only played one match for the first team.

After his time in Italy, he returned to Deportivo Lara, but his contract ended in 2023.

As a result, Casa Pia, with its scouting department, identified the player and brought him to Portugal.

At the moment, he isn’t being utilized much, but this is expected to change with the conclusion of the Pre-Olympic tournament.

So far, he has played only 5 games this season, none of them as a starter and with very low minutes.

Segovia’s playing style and Venezuela

Venezuela qualified in second place in Group A with 8 points, behind only Brazil, who earned 9.

After the first round, the Vinotinto team was defeated by Brazil 2-1 in an electrifying match.

The Venezuelans, however, had several chances to emerge victorious, stacking clear goal-scoring opportunities.

Of course, qualifying for the Olympics is the most important thing for Venezuelans, but that seems distant now, as they have only one point earned.

However, they should not lose hope, as a victory against Paraguay by two or more goals, combined with a possible draw between Brazil and Argentina, would secure a spot for Venezuela.

Regardless, it is necessary to highlight the evolution of Venezuelan football in recent times. Despite facing one of the worst political and economic crises in its history, this development is happening full throttle.

The senior national team is doing very well and is in the qualifying zone for the World Cup, potentially marking the first time the country will play in the pinnacle of the sports universe.

This is also reflected in the youth categories. The U23 team, competing in the Pre-Olympic tournament, has shown a great and promising style of play, which revolves heavily around Segovia.

Segovia, standing at 1.80m, plays as a central midfielder and is right-footed.

He is a very complete midfielder. He has a high marking capacity and is quite intense.

He can escape pressure situations in tight spaces, using short dribbles.

Additionally, he frequently ventures into the area and shows up to finish or assist.

His best match, and the one that best showcases his qualities, was against Brazil in the last group stage match, securing Venezuela’s qualification for the final quadrangular.

He scores the goal that paves the way for the historic 3-1 victory. He steals the ball in the middle of the field from the Brazilian national team, quickly combines with his teammates, and with great physical strength, beats the defender, touching the ball past the goalkeeper.

Honorable mention to Martinez’s beautiful back-heel assist.

The second goal of the Vinotinto team was also scored by Segovia, and the credit goes entirely to him.

He was the most advanced player of his team. When the ball is cleared by the Venezuelan defense, the Brazilian defense handles it very poorly.

Telasco pressures, wins the ball, and unleashes a bomb from outside the box, making it 2-0.

Therefore, he appears to be a modern player, endowed with the characteristics necessary for today’s football. He deserves more minutes for Casa Pia.

Finally, if he plays a similar style of football to what he has been developing in the Pre-Olympic tournament, the modest Portuguese team will be incompatible with his abilities.
